HELPING YOUR BUSINESS
Why is it important to define your company's Mission and Vision? (Part 1)
Having a Mision-Vision set is important whether you're operating a mom-pop business or a multinational corporation. These statements help your team members find their purpose or place in your organization and gives YOU guiding principles about why you do what you do.
Together, your Mission and VIsion provide the following for you and your team:
- Energy and Excitement
- Kindles Passion (ability to suffer)
A vision statement is the Desired End-State, like "Clean water for everyone". It's a one-sentence statement that helps inspire you and your team so that you see the results of your work being manifest.
For example, our vision statement at Pro Website Creators is "Every entrepreneur freed to unleash their true potential to help transform the world".
For us, this means we want to help you not only with your website but with other aspects of your business and life. For example, if you didn't know, Dave is a certified John Maxwell coach (like a life coach) as well as, with Larry Broughton, has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs in their lives and businesses.
We are also coming out with a program called "HireMyVA" where you can Hire and Thrive with a Virtual Assistant without Breaking the Bank! (More on this later).
So what's your Vision (desired end-state) for your company?

11 Things you start doing NOW to make this the best decade ever!
1. Romanticize your life
Most of us follow a daily routine and it can get dull over time. But "romanticizing" small things throughout your day, such as how good the warmth of the sun feels or how wonderful it is to hear your kids' laugh, will immediately boost your day.
2. Travel, Travel, Travel
Find the wonders of this world by wandering.
3. Be curious
Be creative. Find your inner artist even if you're not the dreamer type. Fall in love with yourself by rediscovering yourself in different ways.
4. Balance is the key
Too much work is not good as life is too short. Too much play will dull you down. Find your equilibrium and stick with it.
Don't be afraid to stand out and be different. Let your sparkle shine onto others.
